Podcast: The Practice of Pray-Reading God’s Word

Pray-reading podcast

One of the best ways a Christian can contact and enjoy God is to pray-read His Word. In John 6:63, the Lord Jesus told us His words are spirit and are life. Thus, if we want to contact the Spirit and to receive life, we need to come to God’s Word. This is the best place to meet with God, to contact Him, to absorb Him, and to breathe Him in. When we do this, we’re nourished spiritually and receive the life supply for our Christian life.

George Mueller had this to say about pray-reading God’s Word (taken from a booklet titled Soul Nourishment First):

I began therefore to meditate on the New Testament from the beginning, early in the morning. The first thing I did, after having asked in a few words the Lord’s blessing upon his precious Word, was, to begin to meditate on the Word of God, searching as it were into every verse, to get blessing out of it; not for the sake of public ministry of the Word, not for the sake of preaching on what I had meditated upon, but for the sake of obtaining food for my own soul.

As you can see, pray-reading, or meditating, on God’s Word leads to our being supplied and nourished spiritually for our Christian life. George Mueller practiced this, not to find something to speak in a sermon, but so he could obtain “food for my own soul.” We can do the same by daily pray-reading God’s Word.

You can learn more about this practice by listening to the podcast below. The podcast discusses what pray-reading is and how we can experience it in our Christian life.
